Israeli Minister of Military Affairs Avigdor Lieberman says the Tel Aviv regime does not accept limitations from Russia or any other country on its “actions” in war-ravaged Syria.
Axar.az reports citing Press TV.
“We will maintain total freedom of action. We will not accept any limitation when it comes to the defense of our … interests,” Lieberman said in a video interview with the Hebrew-language Walla news website.
“But we do not want to provoke the Russians. We have an open line of communication at the level of senior officers. The Russians understand us and the fact is that for years we have managed to avoid friction with them in Syria,” he added.
Lieberman then alleged that Iran is seeking to entrench itself militarily in Syria, and pose threats to the Zionist regime.
“We will not tolerate a significant Iranian military force in Syria in the form of military ports and airports or the deployment of sophisticated weaponry,” Lieberman said.
“The Israeli attack on the T-4 airport was carried out with F-15 aircraft that fired several missiles from above Lebanese territory,” a Syrian military source said.
"It only will further complicate the critical situation in Syria and regional equations," he added.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
